After humidity and the intensity and number of thunderstorms diminish into Friday, the weekend will bring a buildup of humidity and the risk of storms around Pittsburgh.

High temperatures are forecast to be in the low to middle 80s F Saturday and Sunday.

While there may be spotty thunderstorms developing on Saturday, Sunday is likely to turn out unsettled with the risk of multiple showers and thunderstorms.

One or more rounds of severe weather are possible in the Northeast as unseasonably cool air swings into the Midwest.

Some of that unseasonably cool air will reach Pittsburgh during the middle and latter part of next week.

Temperatures are projected to be no better than the 70s for multiple days next week around the city, during what is the typically the hottest time of the year. High temperatures average in the middle 80s during the middle of July.

In the mountains, nighttime temperatures could dip into the 40s with daytime highs in the 60s for a time later next week.
